Abstract [en]

The Swedish Committee on Constitutional Reform worked during the period 2004-2008. It was assigned to conduct a comprehensive review of the Instrument of Government, the fundamental law which regulates the governing of Sweden. A gender researcher was engaged by the Committee to make an analysis of the Instrument of Government and to propose necessary changes. In the end nothing was changed in the content of the law; instead the main the main result was the adoption of a gender-neutral language. In this article I show that that gender was basically a non-issue in the Committee. There are two main explanations for this. First, gender is the basis of a hierarchical power structure in society. Issues of gender tend to be seen as deviant and not prioritized. Thus, gender is not easily formulated as a constitutional rule. Second, the Swedish tradition of constitutional minimalism makes it difficult to incorporate new issues in the constitution, as this violates institutionalized norms and traditions.
